It seems that the new film from Nicholas McCarthy, who previously made the very impressive horror The Pact, is so scary in one place that he’s had to re-edit it. The Prodigy is about “a mother who is concerned about her 8-year-old son’s disturbing behavior and thinks something supernatural may be affecting him”, and when McCarthy was asked by ‘EW’ how scary it is, he replied:

“I’ll say this. The first time we previewed the movie, there is a section where people screamed so loud that we had to go back and re-edit the scene that followed it, because people were still recovering from what they had just seen, and they were missing the dialogue.”

Sounds good to me. Here’s the trailer:

Jeff Buhler writes, and Taylor Schilling, Jackson Robert Scott, Brittany Allen, Colm Feore and Peter Mooney star in The Prodigy, which is out February 8, 2019.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
